Healthy Living

Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

Your Path to Wellness

We will get you on the right path to help you reach your fitness goals. Once you join the Y we will schedule your Jump Start appointment where you will have an opportunity to meet with one of the fitness staff to set goals, get assessed, and get your Activtrax log in code. You will also get a free YMCA t-shirt for completing your Jump Start appointment. Your Test Drive will be scheduled next if you want to go through that first workout with one of the fitness staff. Complete Your Path to Wellness within the first 30 days of joining the YMCA you will receive a YMCA workout towel. There's a lot more on Your Path To Wellness and it's all free when you join the Y.

Members are able to choose the kind of appointment they are most comfortable with. Whether you're new to exercise or in tip-top shape, our first appointment experience is an opportunity for us to get to know one another. Whether you want to lift weights, take classes, swim, play sports or have some other interests in mind, we want to make sure we do our part in helping you get started on the right foot.

1. An appointment designed specifically for members who want to incorporate RESISTANCE TRAINING in their exercise routine. Our Wellness Staff will discuss your goals, create a program that's right for you, setup your wellness profile and make sure that you're comfortable using this equipment.

2. A 30-minute appointment that is designed specifically for members who are primarily interested in ACTIVITIES OR GROUP CLASSES. Our Wellness Staff will review class schedules, answer any questions you may have, set up your wellness nutrition profile and make sure that you're comfortable using the facility.
